Tsimane 2021 - FISHING REPORT - WEEK 9


This past week we received four American guests, including angler Bart Bonime for his second trip with us, and first-timers Kevin, Robert, and Dan.

The week started rainy and overcast, with slightly high water levels in the Pluma, and very high water levels in the Sécure. The beginning of the week did not produce as many big Dorado as in past weeks, but did bring many decently-sized fish. Fish size got better towards the end of the week when the Sécure cleared up. The biggest fish of the week was Bart’s 20-lb. dorado caught in the main Pluma. Kevin landed his biggest fish in the last day, a nice Dorado of about 20-lbs. as well.

Big rains brought high water for the first few days of this past week. The first day fishing was challenging, but after that the fishing turned on, with many Dorado coming into the tributaries, and with the help of the slightly colored water, the fishing was awesome. During the first three days, our three anglers landed more than 10 big Dorado as well as some medium-sized fish.

The biggest fish of the week was a 24-lb. Dorado caught in the lower Agua Negra.

This week Sécure received five American guests, including couple Rose and Terry, who first visited us in 2019. Weather conditions made for a tough week; we had heavy rain in the beginning, making the river high and muddy. The final two ways of the week the water cleared and dropped, but temperatures remained below normal for the entire week.

Despite the challenging weather, all anglers had chances at dorado of various size, as well as Pacú, which surprised us as these fish are more sensitive to temperature variations. The biggest fish of the week was a 15-lb. Dorado caught by Gabriel Ondetti as he was fishing structure on the lower section.
